Home Town of ‘Prime Minister of the Blues’

picture of mason


Dutch (b Norman) Mason was a blues singer. Mason was appointed the title “Prime Minister of the Blues” at a BB King concert in Toronto by King himself.

The Lunenburg NS native, Mason was born into a musical family — his father played stand-up bass and drums while his mother was a pianist. He raised in Kentville. At the age of 14, he played drums in his parents’ Dixieland band. By the age of 16, he was hanging out with coloured musicians in the community of Gibson Woods and started to learn how to play guitar.

Mason has lived in the last few years in a wheelchair in Truro, Nova Scotia. He passed away in 2006.
